Beloved indoor playground and after-school care venue Happy Jack's Play World and Cafe in Delacombe is closing.
According to a social media post from the business, the building was sold and the current tenants have been asked to vacate before October 1.
"This has been a difficult decision to accept on top of a challenging year," the post states.
"We have enjoyed the last 18 months of growing the business and will miss each and every child in our program.
"We have had many happy memories of birthdays, surprises and the gathering of loved ones and we thank you for letting us be a part of those special celebrations.
"There have been many laughs and fun times in our playground and our hearts are heavy as we say goodbye."
They added holiday programs in September and after-school care in term four will not be offered.
It's understood the team is taking down the indoor playground equipment, some of which has been seen for sale on social media.
The social media post also noted if circumstances change and a new location is found, "we will let everyone know".
Happy Jack's representatives declined to comment.
